Newly single Cassidy Quinn is thrilled to be a contestant on the new reality dating show The One. But her excitement turns to horror when the gorgeous bachelor turns out to be her ex-boyfriend. Seeing Brad again makes Cassidy realize she might not be as “over him” as she thought—and then she meets hunky cameraman Evan Burke.

After watching his brother lose his wife in a tragic accident, Evan vows never to fall in love. But following Cassidy around as her personal cameraman makes him question his decision, and resisting her gets harder with every sunbathing, bikini-wearing day.

Cassidy and Evan begin a forbidden affair while her ex-boyfriend tries to win her heart back one groping, awkward moment at a time. If Cassidy can manage to stop falling off horses (literally), stop falling onto her ex-boyfriend, the bachelor (yes, literally), and stop falling in love with backstage playboy Evan, she might still make it through the show without becoming a tabloid sensation.

But soon Cassidy must choose between the ex who broke her heart and the cameraman who might never love her back. For Cassidy, this reality show just got real.

Not sure yet? How about an excerpt from the book?

Evan shifted beneath her and in one quick movement she was on her back as he hovered over her. Every part of her body flared to life when he brushed her hair back from her shoulder and left a trail of soft kisses from her collarbone to her belly button.

Oh my God, he’s like the Energizer Bunny.

“You,” he said between kisses, “are not allowed to hide in the sheets. I’ve been tortured by you wearing little pink bikinis and sexy dresses for weeks. Now that I get to see you, all of you, I plan on looking. A lot.”

“You didn’t seem tortured,” she said, breathless.

“Only because you couldn’t read my mind.” He smirked. “Let me assure you, Cassy, what we did last night was tame compared to what I’ve been doing to you in my head.”

“Evan, stop.” She hit him on the shoulder, embarrassed by his words. “I can’t even imagine anything more than what we’ve already done.”

“Don’t worry. You won’t have to imagine for long.”

Cassidy held her breath as he kissed her with more affection than she expected. Passion burned in his kiss, but an undertone of something else was present now too— something that lingered in the pit of her stomach even after he pulled away.

She forced her eyes to focus on him, not wanting to get carried away in the moment again before they’d had a chance to talk. She didn’t know anything about Evan. This wasn’t typical Cassidy behavior, but that’s why she’d come here in the first place—to do something unlike her normal life. She hadn’t realized that would include doing someone, too.

“You know, I don’t even really know you and you’ve already gotten me into your bed.”

“I’m pretty sure you’re the one who came to my room asking for trouble.” “True. But I was looking for answers, not sexy time.”

“Sexy time?” He laughed. “I like that. We should do less talking and a lot more sexy time.”

“No, you should tell me about yourself, Evan—great. I don’t even know your last name.”

“Last names are highly overrated. But it’s Burke. Evan Burke.”
“Are you related to Bond, James Bond?” She couldn’t help but smile.
“We’re only related by our amazing ability to seduce unsuspecting women into our

beds.” He grinned. “It’s a superpower, really. We should come with a warning label.”

  41. tanna4abak says:

    This is the BEST way to spend Black Friday. Sitting at home, hopping with old friends and making new ones. I can’t handle the crowds anymore so I only do Black Friday shopping online if I do any. I tend to pick up gifts throughout the year so come November I’m finished. That way I can spread out the purchasing and not spend a fortune at the time of the year when my job is at its slowest and my paycheck is at its lowest. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.
